The link to this Movie is: Vulnerable stopper endplays


General Type: Tutorial, declarer and defend (12 declarer hands, 2 defender hands)
Voice Track: NO
Quizes: Yes
Time to complete: too long, guestimate roughly 45 minutes to an hour

This movie starts with a general review of the three routine types of endplays, followed by 10 frames highlighting two ways to set up a vulnerable stopper endplay. The first is to strip safe exit cards from the opponent hand by forcing them to follow suit, and the second is by a strip squeeze, where the loser count has to be two. This is followed by the 14 hands, each with at least one, and usually several questions. The questions have a score assigned. In previous discussion of this movie, the major complaint is that it needs bookmarks or chapters so that it can be started and then restarted later on the last frame reviewed. Currently this is not a feature of the movie software. It might be possible to break the movie into the introduction, and then seven separate movies with two of the problem hands each. That way, more advanced playes could skip the mundane intro stuff, and go directly to the problem hands.

The summary of the movie is provided below the line


This document contains a short review of basic elimination endplays followed by 12 hands where you need to find an endplay and two hands where you must defend to prevent
an endplay.

The hands are accompanied by quizzes with a possible 200 points. Learn about elimination endplays and then test how much you absorbed!

In my mind, there is no question that the "Movie" software needs "bookmarks" (maybe if they were called bBooks instead of movies this would be more obvious).

People may frequently not be able to read through anything longer that an "article" on a single hand at one sitting. Being able to return to the same resource that one left is important for that reason. Likewise, if the author wants to provide a number of quizzes, the ability of the reader to return to the "next" one is needed.

It may also be important in the event that the author actually has an error. How do you describe it, when there is no "page number" or track number?

Trick 3, problem 7?
